Copper DAILY PRICE CHART (OCt 12 – FEb 11, 2020) Zoomed In

Copper daily price chart 11-02-20 Zoomed in

Looking at the daily chart, we notice on Jan 24 bears took charge and pressed Copper multi- months low. The price rebounded after, then rallied towards the high end of current trading zone $5.519- $5.735.

On Thursday, the metal closed the daily candlestick with a bearish Doji pattern reflecting that bears were not done yet. Today, the price opened with a gap to the upside. A close above the high end of the zone highlights bears hesitation and could lead some of them to ease up further. This might cause a rally towards $6.012. That said, the weekly resistance levels underlined on the chart (zoomed in) should be considered.

In turn, any failure in closing above the high end of the zone may encourage bears to lead Copper towards the low end. Further close below this level could mean more bearishness towards $5.239. In that scenario, the weekly support levels marked on the chart should be monitored as some traders might join/exit the market around these points.
